1- itis on the Scanning unit open and look for a thin strip of glass, clean
2-the scanning unit is bad

Assuming it's only on Outgoing Fxs and not incoming as well ( that would indicate the drum)

SOURCE: black line down one side of paper

Lift the auto feeder cover and clean the narrow glass that the originals are scanned across...sounds like you have some dirt there -maybe correction fluid? That's the most common.
Please rate me :)

Have you changed the Drum unit. Also there is a cleaning pad that you slide across the corona for cleaning. If you leave it in the middle it will give a black line, should be moved all the way to one side.

It could be 2 things...

1. Your scanner glass is dirty...open the doc feeder and clean the glass. probably Wite-Out.

2. A segment of your scanner assembly lamp is burned out. Not good, uneconomical to repair.

My Brother MFC-7420 Printer always prints black lines and splotches down the left side of my paper. This happens whether I'm scanning or printing from my PC. When I looked at my drum, it appears a


If you are seeing vertical streaks/black lines your primary corona wire is dirty and or the fax scanner may be dirty.
1)To clean the corona wire you take the drum unit and toner cartridge and place it on disposable paper to avoid spilling.
2) Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by sliding the blue tab from right to left several times.
3) Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position.
4) Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge.
5) Close the front cover.
Caution: if you do not return the blue tab to the home position it may repeat the black lines.

I have black smudgy lines going down the left hand side of my printed copies. What do I do?


1. Check the toner level, when it's low the quality of the prints becomes poor.
2. If toner level is good, clean out the printer inside. The best way is to buy an air compressed can, get the printer in an open space and blow any toner from the inside of the printer. Give it a good clean as there might be residual toner inside that make the poor quality.

SMUDGE LINES


I'm gonna assume you have a laser printer. You might need a cleaning since some toner might have spilled when you replace your toner. Toner gets into the rollers inside the printer that pulls the paper thru and creates smudgy black lines.

Check out your local business supply store like Staples for Laser Printer Cleaning paper. It doesn't work 100% of the time depend how dirty the inside of the printer is. Maybe a quick fix then buying a new printer. Getting toner mess out is a a messy job.

Smudgy Photo orints


Make sure you are printing on the correct side of the paper. Most photo paper is single-sided. If you print on the wrong side, the ink sits on the surface, pulls up into very small drops, and remains wet for quite a while. If you print on the correct side, the image should be dry to the touch within 15-30 seconds.
